Cecily Brown: Shipwreck Drawings

Friday 17 November 2017 – Sunday 15 April 2018

Exhibition drawings by Cecily Brown of wrecked ships and their passengers. These images are in part inspired by Gericault's The Raft of the Medusa (1819) as well as work by Delacroix and other Old Masters, to re-examine human presence, figuration and representations of maritime tragedy throughout history.
